The COVID-19 pandemic has made education across the board much more challenging. For many, online studies seem to be the best available option. However, even virtual learning becomes intimidating for fields of study such as the culinary arts and professional cookery due to the practical elements involved. Fortunately, we at the Chefs Training & Innovation Academy offer comprehensive online chef courses that can be done from the comfort of your own home and in your own time. Best of all – they’re accredited. There are several other benefits of enrolling in one of our online chef courses, which we explore below.
We Have Our Own Online Platform
Our E-learning platform is geared towards students who opt for a blended or online learning programme. It allows students to watch instructional videos, attend live webinars, complete learning activities and tasks, submit their assignments and attend scheduled Zoom online classes. This centralised hub streamlines your studies and makes keeping track of your curriculum a breeze.
You Are Never Without Support
Even though the training we provide happens virtually, you will still have ample support from involved and engaging lecturers, as well as contact with other students like you. Regular live sessions allow mentors to support students with all the questions, queries, and assistance they may require with anything else. In this way, students do not feel as though they are left to make sense of the work on their own without any direction or mentoring. Our open-door policy encourages students to make contact if ever they feel they need more support in certain areas.
Practical Training is Still Possible
We aim to provide students with a set of advanced skills in food preparation that is applicable in any professional environment. To do so, theoretical learning must be integrated with practical training. We make this possible in our online chef courses by providing students with instructional guides, recipes, and comprehensive videos on how activities must be completed.
Contact Sessions Keep You Connected
Another benefit of studying with us is that we keep you connected and in contact with other students and lecturers with monthly contact sessions. Students are free to choose between on-campus sessions or live-streaming sessions viewed wherever they are.
In terms of our online chef courses, we have a Professional Culinary Arts Programme and a CTIA Professional Pastry Programme that are both accredited and run for a duration of 12 months. If you would like to know more about these courses and whether they are a fit for you, be sure to get in touch with us today.
